In a recent interview with Vulture, Jason Statham opened up about why he decided against doing another “Transporter” series. It’s good to finally know the real reason behind it and we completely understand his decision.

They’re rebooting the Transporter series without you. How do you feel that?

You know what? It was obviously a great experience doing those films, and I would have loved to keep doing it. But they wanted me to sign on and do three more films without even seeing a script, and they offered me less money to do three than I’d get paid for one! So it was a business decision. I would have loved to have done it, but you can’t really sign on without doing a script, and to sign on for three of them? And to get paid a pittance? I just couldn’t see the value in that.

Statham also talked about how much fun he had filming “Spy” and that he would love to do more comedies in future. Clearly we couldn’t be more supportive of that because he is a natural when it comes to that difficult film genre.

You’ve got Spy coming up soon, where you get to show off your comedic bona fides. Every so often, you’ll switch up the action movies with something more unexpected … are you looking to do more comedies, or more dramas?

I had such a good time working with Paul Feig on Spy. If I spend the next ten years working for him, I’ll be a very happy man. It was such a revelation for me to do something of that nature, and working with Melissa and Paul … that’s high-caliber people to surround yourself with. So yeah, I’d love to more comedies like that.

    Yes, that is correct.

    Many factors play a role when it comes to an actor’s decision to say yes or no to a new project. We can’t speak for Jason Statham, so we go by the information that is made available to us online. Bottom line is that it’s his career, he makes his own decisions and doesn’t owe anyone an explanation for it.

    I don’t care about the decisions he makes and of course he is entitled not to give an explanation.I just don’t want it to be confusing .Nonetheless most of people don’t care about it,which I think that ‘s quite all right.

    Of course, Iman, that’s understandable.

    And we know there is only one Transporter and that’s Jason Statham. He made the character Frank Martin just like Sylvester Stallone made Rocky or Rambo. Some roles can’t be just passed on and portrayed by other actors.

    Well, They wanted Somebody else for the role. A cheaper one.

    And that clearly backfired.
